    Does anyone notice that the copy,paste,cut option on highlighted test on RT is gone? need to CTRL V,X,C now.

    On which apps does it happen? You can't do what I did with IE now?

    Touch-hold, touch on the word for the slider to appear. Double-click on word using mouse.

    Just restart your RT.

    I'm on 8.1 and the screenshot I showed you is on 8.1

    On Notepad, I made it to work using double-tap, and tap-slide to mark a word.

    It's weird. Also I notice there are delays on my on screen KB. I'll try to do system refresh.

    Thnx sir Arnold.

    I am new to Surface and noticed the same thing. I thought it was a shortcoming. If I browse in the Modern UI IE and select text I get Copy option only. If I am in the Desktop version then I get more options. I checked IE options and found nothing that would help.

    If I'm in the modern UI IE I get options for Search, Share and Copy when selecting text. If I select text as I type this I get Search, Share, Cut, Copy and Paste.

    There must be a setting somewhere. I posted on MS forum as well as here. If I do learn more I will share it here
